Screen can exclusively reveal the first international trailer for Rams, Jeremy Sims’ English-language remake of Grímur Hákonarson’s 2015 Icelandic hit.
WestEnd Films is handling worldwide sales, and is screening the Australian film during next week’s Cannes online market, which runs from June 22-26.
Rams stars Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) and Michael Caton (The Animal) in the story of a decades-long feud between two sheep farming brothers which comes to a head when disaster strikes their flocks.
Miranda Richardson, Asher Keddie, and Hayley McElhinney are also in the cast. Jules Duncan adapted the script, with Janelle Landers and Aidan O’Bryan from WBMC producing.
Rams received production investment from Screen Australia, Screenwest and the Western Australian Regional Film Fund. Village Roadshow will distribute the film in Australia and New Zealand.
Grímur Hákonarson’s 2015 film of the same name won the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes 2015, going on to play extensively on the festival circuit including at Karlovy Vary, Telluride, Toronto, Busan, and Sundance.
